    You mean XUL, XULRunner is a bootstrap for XPCOM and XUL application.

    I dont care if they use GTK3, QT, or native X, or whatever else.
    I just care that they use something supported by Wayland really.

    Might have missread the first time, for some reason I read that XULRunner was the GUI, instead of most Firefox running on XULRunner, I really need to stop reading forum late at night. =p

GTK3 *supports* client-side decorations, but it doesn't require them, and they're not in use on any released version of Gnome (though may be used on Wayland).
    But... they're used in Gnome 3.12 applications... which are released...

    based on how you use headerbar. at least what little i toyed with gnome 3.12 and glade+vala
    disable title bar=true and then add that headerbar to window. if you don't disable titlebar, titlebar will be present as normally. as far as i saw headerbar is just container with added functionality like window dragging, close button, centred title with subtitle and you can add anything you want inside, just like any other container. it's actually great widget to work with and that comes from person who was not really happy how gtk is evolving

    based on what i saw, i wouldn't say csd is used. but, as i said i'm not really reliable source

    This IS true, but a bit shortsided. GTK+, particularly with the 3.12 has a lot of improvements. it absolutely kills any other gtk+ release. Sure there has been breakage, but much of it needed to happen. And really, most people are frustrated over theming breakage or the perceived problem of CSD, more than anything else. in the CSD case, SSD sucks crap, imho ; ie: drawing the decoration separate from the rest of the app is whack. It doesn't look good, creates complexity, etc....

    gtk/CSS theming is getting to a point where there will never be a need for gtk "engines". You can do it all in css, not need to maintain some chunk of code to draw buttons a certain way or whatever. On top of that, you can finally do some nice stuff in 3.12 - much nicer than previous gtk releases. [and it's not hard to hack together an "override" for adwaita to make it look how you want, without having to maintain a full gtk[2/3/metacity] theme and it will get even easier, when CSD is the norm.

    I do agree with you here, it's usually an after thought to support non-gnome stuff...a bit annoying. I do wish they would play with all of the other kids in the sandbox

    I don't use mutter / GS [?] ... what Am i doing wrong / how come I have a working Desktop? lol. ... Give me some real examples of how my window manager can't manage windows anymore???

    In my case, i am using a few components; compiz, cairo-dock, gnome-flashback; minux gnome-panel and also nautilus with some of ubuntu's patches... The only rouch edge is compiz' "resize plugin" miscalculates CSD decorations [since shadows are drawn in CSD/toolkit, not by WM... which is better anyway and it's a minor issue]. Aside from that, the only horror story i have [that's not a horror story at all] is i did have a CSD app lock [only once] and had to forcekill it, since the app/window couldn't focus. [but that's after using 3.12 for a while now... no other problems and was solved with 2 clicks via "windows killer" widget in Cairo-dock... or is your idea of not letting the WM manage windows mean "no maximize or minimize buttons"? [gtkbuttonbar supports that, there is a setting in gsettings for it]... and aside from all of that - i only see CSD in Gnome apps, not others.

    anyway, aside from the odd rough edge, gtk+ 3.12+ is shaping nicely. I don't think it is as bad as you say.

    I never said the header bar was bad (and I'm not the guy that said it was forced...), I just say it's not _really_ CSD. Like you said, it's basically a container: you can place certain buttons/objects inside, but it's not like you can just draw whatever you want in it and have it flow to the container below it (e.g. a web browser with CSD/tabs-in-titlebar)

    Also, Gnome's CSD is used throughout most Gnome in-house applications at this point. Nautilus, gnome-system-monitor, archive-manager, calculator, gedit, etc etc. One place I'm surprised to not see it is in gnome-terminal, which I'm sure is coming soon (they were probably focusing on the non-tech-user facing apps first). But yeah, I'd say that ~75% of Gnome apps use their header bars at this point.

    CSD is used in Gnome apps [some still haven't been ported yet]. But nautilus, gedit, disks, tweak-tool, system-settings and some other bits do use CSD 100%

    It's easy to tell the difference if you have a compositing WM that can do wobbly windows [kwin, compiz]. With SSD if you move the window around fast enough - you will see that the edges between decoration/window bar and window are not in sync - you may see bleeding, or possibly the image behind the window come through... With CSD - it's all one surface - so wobbling a window actually renders properly. Here is an example; [screenshot on left-side of screenshot; of Gnome-terminal, as SSD app with window separation && nautilus, an SSD app being violently shaken; ZERO separation, obviously..]



    not that i need wobbly windows [cause i don't]. But they show one stupid detail of rendering decorations separate from their window/contents. [another is resizing, moving windows, which is more taxing with SSD].

    you probably misunderstood my comment. csd is painting on actual titlebar managed by wm. using headerbar requires you to disable it and use part of your window for wm operations, but you don't paint on it. it looks like csd, it works like csd, but it is not csd

    what you see in gnome is headerbar with disabled titlebar. i'd guess that headerbar on wayland will work like real csd, right now it is just nearest hacked end result
